Is there anything for political progressives in the Christian message? Slavoj Žižek recognises the potential of Christianity to embody moral and political revolt. John Milbank believes theology is the only foundation upon which knowledge, politics and ethics can stand. They have co-authored The Monstrosity of Christ and tonight discuss Christian theology’s emancipatory potential. Chair: Giles Fraser, vicar of Putney.
Also available by Slavoj Zizek on religion is The Fragile Absolute: Or, Why is the Christian Legacy Worth Fighting For?, a new edition re-published in the Essential Zizek series.
